Pros

Scheduling is completely flexible! This is a huge help. Unless you have a completely predictable schedule, having the ability to set your work days and decide to take on more or less students is extremely helpful. Also, Varsity Tutors is pretty hands-off, so you figure out what tutoring methods work for you, and you log your lessons online. Occasionally you may not click with a student (or your methods may not work), but most of the time, you sort things out and it is productive. Students are almost always friendly and invested in improving themselves.

Cons

Once you are a tutor for Varsity, you cannot tutor for other agencies. This is reasonable but can be frustrating. Also, there are dry spells where you get no students. So, you cannot count on this job for reliable income. Some months you make a lot, other months, sometimes zero. If you have no tutoring experience, it may be daunting to tutor your first students, and sometimes you get a student and things just don't work out (e.g. you can't help them, or they aren't sure they need you, etc.).
